A few excerpts on Adam Weishaupt being influenced by Grotius:
“Wolffianism” refers to the philosophy of Christian Wolff (1679-1754). Weishaupt was indeed very familiar with Wolffian philosophy; his godfather Ickstatt had even been a pupil and disciple of that German philosopher.63 In fact, as early as 1772 Weishaupt caused a “huge scandal” at the University of Ingolstadt by publishing a paper filled with enthusiasm for the protestant philosophical principles of Hugo Grotius, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Wolff.64
Weishaupt wasn’t strictly a disciple of any one philosophy or doctrine. He was an eclectic in the tradition of the popular philosophers of his time, appropriating the seemingly disparate systems of Leibniz, Grotius, Wolff; Locke and the English empiricists; the materialist and atheist French Philosophes; the ancient philosophers of Greece and Rome; and the mystery traditions of antiquity most commonly revered by occultists. George Di Giovanni wrote that Weishaupt’s philosophical writings were perfectly “in tune with the general aspirations of popular philosophy.”72 But if Weishaupt had an ideal, he had the most respect and admiration for the academic achievements of the Göttingen circle of Illuminati: Feder, Meiners, Koppe, and Spittler.
